Interesting location for kilometer post
Jul 2017 • Family
The Zero Kilometer post is situated next to the viewpoint of the Aldan River. It is found by walking on Kychkina Street and taking a left onto Naberezhnaya Street. At first appearance, the road seems to be leading to a "dead end", but if you continue walking you will be rewarded by beautiful views of the Aldan River. There are many benches in this area where the river views may be enjoyed. The zero kilometer monument is a black and white post, and this is situated at the top of a flight of steps near to the end of the road, on the left. All towns and cities have the Zero Kilometer marker, which is where all measurements are started in town.

On a pedestal, behind the Zero Kilometer marker, is the golden statue of a Yakut lady in traditional dress. She is holding a stalk in her right hand. A gold plate has a Russian inscription on the base of the statue. This area offers a great view of the beach, and the water traffic on the river. It is a great place to take a break when walking through the town. This area is accessible 24 hours per day, and photos may be taken.
